The committee of 16 community representatives overseeing the Las Vegas Victims' Fund has released the draft protocol for distribution of funds to victims of the 1 October tragedy. The committee is encouraging input on the protocol from victims' families and survivors, as well as members of the Las Vegas community. The draft protocol can be found at lasvegasvictimsfund.org and comments are being accepted through Dec. 8, 2017. Written comments are welcome at firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail to the Las Vegas Victims' Fund, P.O. Box 551111, Las Vegas, Nevada 89155-1111. Two town hall meetings were held – one in the morning and one in the evening. This is the evening session. Victims of 1 October should note that the Las Vegas Victims Fund is separate from the Nevada Victims of Crime Program. Applications for assistance from the Nevada State Crime Victim Compensation Program must be submitted by Oct. 1, 2018. Anyone who was present at the festival during the shooting, regardless of home state or country of origin, may be eligible for assistance through the Nevada Victims of Crime Program. Funds from the program may help reimburse victims of the shooting for out-of-pocket expenses resulting from the crime such as medical bills, funeral expenses and mental health counseling not covered by insurance. Anyone eligible to apply for the program is encouraged to submit an application by Oct. 1, 2018. This will ensure that even if you have no expenses at this time you may be eligible for assistance through the program if you incur expenses after the application deadline. You can contact the Vegas Strong Resiliency Center if you have questions about the program or need assistance submitting an application.
